SIGNIFICANCE – Heroes Homecoming 2.0

WE HONOR OUR
MISSING COMRADES

 

The Missing Man Table, similar to the Fallen Comrade Table, honors the memory of missing or imprisoned military service members. To date, North Carolina has more unaccounted for veterans than any state in the southeast, with a recorded 1,536 POW/MIA.
